I am amazed at the mindset of people in this town given Keith Wiley’s comments about the noises of the various vehicles of commerce.
Every time we hear one of these noises (helicopter, train, trucks, motorcycle or plane) it is most likely someone going to work and contributing to our region. Those motorcycles generate a lot of income to our hotels, restaurants etc. The helicopters and planes contribute a lot of revenue to our sleepy hollow community and without that airport to base them and the air ambulance from, we would have greater impairment.
I employ big noisy highway trucks and have a noisy motorcycle for commuting to work down by the airport. I would suggest that if people do not like the noises of commerce they should buy earplugs or move farther into the valleys where they can hear the chainsaws and logging equipment.
Noise of commerce is everywhere, my friends. Suck it up and move on.
